From a higher perspective, a higher level, the existence of order and chaos, is a necessary part of the evolution of life.

Many people have found that they experience a deepening, or a deeper sense of self or beingness, immediately after and as a result of having endured a period of chaos. This is sometimes called “the dark night of the soul,” a term from medieval Christianity used to describe the mental breakdown that many mystics experienced prior to awakening spiritually. There was an eruption of disorder, of destruction. Then, out of that, a deeper realization arose.

And although that can be very painful, the strange thing is, it’s precisely there that many humans experience a transcendence. A strange fact is that it almost never happens that people awaken spiritually while they’re in their comfort zone. Or that they become deeper as human beings, which would be a partial awakening. It almost never happens. The place where the evolutionary shift happens, or the evolutionary leap, is usually the experience of disorder in a person’s life.

And so your life then moves between order and disorder. You have both, and they’re both necessary. There’s no guarantee that when chaos erupts this will bring about an awakening or a deepening, but there’s always the possibility. It is an opportunity, but often, it is missed.

So here we are at this time, and our mission is the same: to align with the present moment, with whatever is happening here and now. The upheaval that we’re experiencing at the present time probably will not be the last upheaval that’s going to come on a collective level. However, it is an opportunity—because although this is a time for upheavals, it is also a time for awakening. The two go together. Just as in an individual life, you need adversity to awaken. It’s an opportunity but not a guarantee and is all part of the awakening of human beings and of planetary awakening.

Comet Atlas

Best night sky events happen every evening in April 2020. Tonight though on Saturday April 18th is already brightening skywatchers’ night with Comet Atlas in the Northern Sky.

It is predicted to become bright enough to see without binoculars or a telescope. The moonless nights surrounding this weekend are the best in finding a hint of green, which is Comet Atlas.

Love, K 🙂

Rising Lotus Yoga Santa Clarita

I love this cute Yoga center in Santa Clarita. I know we all are practicing social distancing but felt like sharing another writing article I wrote for LA Yoga Magazine and sharing this great yoga studio.

Charming Old Town Newhall has a rich history. It’s a community whose present has just become richer with Rising Lotus Yoga Santa Clarita.

Rising Lotus Yoga, the vibrant studio located in Sherman Oaks and co-founded by Daniel Stewart and Claire Hartley in 2006, is expanding with an oasis for practice in the heart of the Santa Clarita Valley. Rising Lotus Yoga Santa Clarita Co-Owners Claire Hartley and Santa Clarita native Heather Riggen have come together to create this space that promotes the unity and awareness inherent in yoga. They exude enthusiasm with their mission to provide a yoga experience that is joyful, immersive, and creates a sense of ease for students.

Classes at Rising Lotus Yoga Santa Clarita

Claire and Heather are both long-time dedicated yoga practitioners whose want to share yoga and build community. Some of the classes offered at Rising Lotus Yoga Santa Clarita include: Urban Zen, which features Reiki as well as the use of essential oils; several Restorative yoga classes to quiet and relax the mind and body; and the studio’s signature Flow Yoga class. In the Flow class, students move from pose to pose with variations that encourage deep strength and a greater range of motion.

Rising Lotus Yoga Santa Clarita is full of good vibes and a welcoming spirit. The space features practice-friendly bamboo floors, sunny classrooms — named the Shiva and Ganesha rooms, and a mission-driven retail store. Stop by and participate in Rising Lotus’ invitation to experiment new practices, shift perspectives, and develop strength, and even greater happiness.

As their tagline asserts, “Let Joy Rise!”
